Research Interests

Fiona's areas of research interest are women in politics, the politics of the Republic of Ireland and the scholarship of teaching and learning. 

In her gender politics research, Fiona uses the concept of gender power to examine the role of women in politics, in particular women in executive leadership. She also researches the adoption and implementation of gender quotas in Irish elections. 

Within her research on Irish politics, much of this work is concentrated in the area of voting behaviour, ballot paper design and electoral reform. 

Within the field of teaching and learning, Fiona has published research on the use of Information Technology in the teaching of political science.  She has also examined the use of work placement in the teaching and learning of political science. 

Fiona has has been successful in securing research funding to pursue her research interests, particularly in the area of teaching and learning.  She has received funding from the Irish Research Council, the National Academy for Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (NAIRTL) and the European Commission's Leonardo DaVinci and Erasmus funds.
